From Chaos to Sanity

  • thumbnail for Andrea Hollenbeck
  • This clinic focuses on daily tips on efficiency to open up your time, and in turn, keeping students enrolled in band and playing at a high level. The included website highlights monthly tips, so you aren't reinventing the wheel. This clinic is geared towards the first-year teacher to the very experienced teacher. A quote from a seasoned colleague said, "You gave me a lot to think about and reflect upon to improve both my teaching and my interactions with others."
